B.Tech. in Agricultural Engineering - Batch of 2024
4.4
4Placements4Infrastructure4Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life5Value for Money
One of the best agriculture engineering colleges in India with really good placements.
Placements: 20–25 students out of 70 were placed and the rest of them wanted to go for further studies at IIT Kharagpur, a few wanted to do an MBA; and some of the students in our batch wanted to go to America on scholarships to do a Masters. The top recuring companies are John Deere, Mahindra, Tafe, and Amul .
Infrastructure: Infrastructure is satisfactory and hostels are also okay, as all the hostels in government universities are same but mess is really good; non-vegetarians are served 3 days in mess and the average mess bill is around 4-5k per person if he eats regularly. Classrooms are not provided with ACs.
Faculty: Exams are a little bit difficult and 75% attendance is compulsory. And the minimum passing mark required is 50% for every exam. If we fail in any subject, then next year we have to pick that subject again. And there are certain restrictions on picking up the subjects again .
Other: In B.Tech. Agri., we study subjects like civil, mechanical, computer, farm power and machinery, post-harvest food engineering, and soil and water engineering. It is a really good degree for someone who has a keen interest in agriculture.

Other: I chose this course because of my interest in nature. Students learn many things in this course about tropical, sub-tropical, and temperate fruits and vegetables. It has broadened my knowledge about ornamental plants and forestry.

You can also be a food inspector, soil inspection officer and many more. Also recruited by various food processing industries. Great opportunities in agribusiness. University have CGPA system, 7 or more than 7 capable is considered good.
Infrastructure: Good infrastructure having all the facilities like washrooms, Wi-Fi, canteens, individual book banks for all different departments. Have Asia's the largest library in the campus. Labs with international class equipments. But hostels are not so good, old buildings with a lot of damages. Quality of food in mess is average. Medical facilities are also not so good. Great infrastructure for sports but no so good coaches. You'll have both the options for NSO and NSS. You'll have all hockey stadium, cricket ground, cycling velodrome, swimming pools, gym, athletic tracks and all type of games.
Faculty: Faculty is too good. All the teachers are Ph.D. scholars and scientists. Habe a great research experience and well-equipped with practical knowledge also. Digital teaching technologies also available. But have very hectic lecture schedules and tough examination system. You've to go through 4 rounds of exams in 6 month semester I. e first hourly exams, mid term exams, practical exams and then end term examswith a Vast syllabus. Many of the courses make you industry ready and many will prepare you for lab and field work. This will also help in civil service jobs.
Other: Our country is agriculture leading nation and more than 60% of our population depends upon agricultural income directly or indirectly. Therefore have a great scope and opportunity in this field.
